Carbon offset

The 10ICSHMO organizing committee is aware that air travel associated with an international conference generates large amounts of CO2 emissions. To help addressing this, we require that participants evaluate their emission when registering, using the table below. 10ICSHMO promotes carbon compensation, and will do its best to compensate, at least partially, the airborne-generated emissions.

For this, 10ICSHMO works locally in collaboration with Mocamana, a non-governmental organization of New Caledonia that develops projects for the benefit of the climate and sustainable development. Based on the Carbon Offsetting rates of 19 €/TCO2 (25.8 $US/TCO2) provided by Mocamana, 10ICSHMO will seek funding for Mocamana projects that target carbon compensation through reforestation.

Alternatively, participants may offset their greenhouse gas emissions on a voluntary basis, e.g. those listed in www.carbonoffsetguide.com.au or www.compensationco2.fr
